Lawrence Ferlinghetti called his dog "a real realist/ with a real tale to tell/ and a real tail to tell it with," and poets since Elizabeth Barrett Browning have seemed to agree, creating memorable poems about the four-legged companions so many of us love. The latest of these is Mary Oliver's awe-inspiring Dog Songs, a collection of her poetic tributes to canines, including deep bows to Percy, "oh, wisest of little dogs." Perhaps the most endearing poetry book of the year.
